Many people are benefiting from CBD as a recovery aid from the aches and pains that can accompany an active lifestyle. In addition to pain relief from reduced inflammation, a good night's rest is also essential for recovery. The cannabis plant has long been used for medical purposes and some studies are demonstrating that CBD may also be an effective sleep aid.
What current research suggests:
In the last decade, growing public interest in the benefits of marijuana, and CBD in particular, has encouraged researchers to study its effects. Early studies indicate that CBD may support sleep. One investigation found that, compared with a placebo, CBD increased sleep duration.
Typically, cortisol levels peak in the morning. Conversely, people with insomnia may have high cortisol levels at night which may negatively affect sleep.
A Certificate of Analysis or “COA” is a report card that provides valuable information about the quality and make-up of a product’s hemp contents. A “COA” is just as crucial for the customer as it is for responsible CBD companies. But, why is it so important to the consumer?
The short answer is no. Cannabidiol (CBD) should not show up on a drug test.
However, it depends on the product’s quality and composition. Many CBD products contain trace amounts of delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), this is marijuana’s main active ingredient that produces a “high”. In other words, if enough THC is present in a CBD product, it will show up on a drug test. So in some instances, using a CBD product could lead to a positive drug test.
